if the amazon web service went down cold. they could survive that with no down time. they knew what to do, sandy wiped out the entire east coast infrastructure and head a backup that could recon construct it with the touch of a button. this is the seriousness in which they took the data operation and on election day as the romney campaign's orca system, because the orca is the only thing that hunts the narwhal, as it went belly up on the beach, the obama campaign system worked. the day after the election the "new york times" reported, quote, the power of this operation stunned mr. romney's aids on election nature as they saw voters they never knew existed. it is one thing to say are you going to do it. it is another thing to get out there and do it, said brian jones, a senior adviser. at the end of the day the obama campaign's get out the vote registered 1.8 million new voters by knocking on doors and registered another 1.1 million through online campaigns including a groundbreaking facebook app that deserves a special word because it genuinely might reshape how campaigns run going forward. mich
to blame sandy and chris christie for mitt romney's loss. he has to reaffirm the republican base that he's with them. >> ari, when you look at the president's approval numbers on the storm, i believe it's 67% of the public according to our nbc news numbers, 67% approve, 16% disapprove. 17% not sure. it's not something that the republicans want, certainly sandy has done a good job of not only making the case are for government but showing that the president is capable of working across the aisle? >> yeah. i don't think that people really in ohio, for example, are going to change their mind over the last minute over this leadership, good as it is. but i do think to your point that what we see here is a freezing of the political facts that existed a week ago where mitt romney was gaining a little but no way in the lead. the new poll number out tonight still show this slight but real edge for the president. and not a big edge. but, again, mitt romney lost a week of politicking here and that is the biggest problem. if the republicans now as a prebuttal or on tuesday after they lose, try to pu
that sandies, the storm, that occurred the week before the election made a difference. one, he said it allowed the president to look presidential. you know, he was sort of doing presidential duties and handling the storm. the second thing was that it took up a lot of the awaves. newhouse said the public was rightly focused on the storm but it didn't allow the romney campaign to prosecute their message. the third thing he said was president obama was a able to make use of his relationship with governor chris christie and behave in an elevated bipartisan way that governor romney had been trying to do. >> was there any whiff of bitterness with regard to the reference it chris christie? >> no. on the call he mentioned it was a statement of fact. >> and what about responses from any of the big donors on the call? were there any complaints? were there any reactions from them at the notion that mitt romney used all their money in what was a losing effort? >> the donors on this call were not able to ask questions. i've heard gripes from donors privately but on this call someone on it described it to m
up my mind, so i'm telling you. >> according to a new quinnipiac poll, less than a month after sandy hit new jersey, voters there have given him a 72% approval rating. the highest recorded by quinnipiac for a new jersey governor. ever. 95% of new jersey voters gave christie an excellent or good rating for his response to hurricane sandy. and despite criticism from some national republican leaders, 84% approved of christie's praise of president obama's response to the storm, including 69% of republicans. newark's democratic mayor, cory booker, told the new jersey star ledger today, quote, i'm giving a run consideration. critical to my decision is not the difficulties of the politics or positioning in polls, but choosing the position from which i can make the best contributions to the city and state i love. meanwhile, a new rutgers eagleton poll finds governor christie leading mayor booker in a hypothetical race, 53 to 34%. joining me now, david corn and msnbc political analyst, jonathan allen, senior washington correspondent for politico. david corn, let's talk about cory booker for a
of hurricane sandy. people don't want just knee jerk no government. they want a government that really does work. >> and a "washington post" poll showing 60% of americans support what is now in fact the tom cole barack obama position. raising incomes on over $250,000 in income. when you look at these polls the republicans are reading, when you look at the totality the way this is coming in, the point "the wall street journal" editorial board and tom cole was trying to drive in today, the rates are going up. now, what are our options? and he's saying our best omptio is actually what the president has laid out. >> that's right and so, john boehner has asked himself, how do we get to that place and i think you were right earlier, that he's allowing cole to go out there and everyone knows cole is a good friend. everyone knows if they come to some type of deal, it's going to require some republicans and a ton of democrats, but it's going to require a significant number of of republicans. not four or five. it may be as many as 50 to 100 because the democrats are going to insist we're not going to
